It’s writing prompt time!

Every week at Five Minute Friday, we gather around a single word prompt to freewrite for five minutes flat.

This week’s FMF writing prompt is: HELP 





One of the most humbling and rewarding aspects of sharing my story in my memoir, A Place to Land, is hearing from readers who say the book helped them. The writing process itself — spending hours, days, weeks, months, and years working through my story, writing and re-writing, editing, deleting, and starting over — was more therapeutic and helpful to me than I ever imagined it could be . . . but it’s an even greater gift to hear that it helped someone else. To be honest, during the writing process, I wondered if it was worth it . . . but I prayed and asked God, “If You can use this to help just one person, please give me the strength and ability to finish it.”

My encouragement to you is this: You never know who your story might help, or how or when it might do so. Your job is not to do the changing or transforming — it’s to be faithful with the gifts, talents, and stories God has given you, and to steward them well. You will likely never know how many people you have helped in this life — and that’s okay. God knows, and He deserves all the glory.
